NEW YORK, 2016-Aug-24 — /EPR Retail News/ — It’s official – Chick-fil-A is coming to the beautiful city of Reno, Nevada in 2017! We are excited to serve our guests in Reno next year and committed to the great state of Nevada with 8-10 restaurants planned in the next five years. More details on our first location and the selected local owner will be available soon. In the meantime, here’s a bit about us:

Our Food

  • Our menu items are made with fresh, simple ingredients right in our kitchens.
    • We freshly squeeze lemons for our three-ingredient lemonade (lemons, water, sugar).
    • Our creamy Milkshakes are hand-spun.
    • Our chicken is 100 percent pure breast meat (no fillers or additives), hand-fileted and hand-breaded every day in each restaurant’s kitchen.
    • We hand-chop and prepare all of our salads fresh daily.
  • In 2014, Chick-fil-A became the first quick-service restaurant to commit to serving only chicken raised without antibiotics in all of our restaurants within five years.

Our People

  • Chick-fil-A franchise Owner/Operators live and work in the community in which their restaurants are located, and are highly involved in the day-to-day operations, as they only oversee one or two locations.
  • Creating a happy and valuable workplace experience for team members is important to Chick-fil-A franchise Owner/Operators. In fact, Chick-fil-A was the only restaurant brand named to the Top 10 “Best Companies to Work For” by 24/7 Wall Street.
  • Chick-fil-A provides leadership and scholarship opportunities for restaurant team members. Over the years, Chick-fil-A has awarded $34 million in scholarships.


  • Chick-fil-A’s franchise Owner/Operators engage with and support local communities through Spirit Night fundraisers, charitable donations and other involvement with causes that matter to their community and guests.
  • Many Chick-fil-A franchise Owner/Operators offer a weekly Kid’s/Family Night with themes or events where they encourage families to come to together to have some fun while enjoying great food.

Whole Foods Market stores in Northern California and Reno, Nevada to donate 5 percent of their July 20 sales to fund 13 local small businesses

Northern California, 2016-Jul-02 — /EPR Retail News/ — Whole Foods Market’s 43 stores in Northern California and Reno, Nevada, will donate 5 percent of their Wednesday, July 20, sales to fund Local Producer Grants given to 13 small businesses in the region.

The Whole Foods Market Local Producer Grant, presented by Working Solutions, is designed to support the growth of businesses bringing innovative, high quality natural products to the marketplace. Recipients are selected by Whole Foods Market’s regional buyers because they offer best-in-category quality, present an ingredient in a new way, and/or show a strong commitment to a mission or environmental cause. Additionally, recipients’ products must meet Whole Foods Market’s strict quality standards.

This year’s grant recipients are:

The grants will follow a Community Giving Day on July 20. With Community Giving days, Whole Foods Market donates 5 percent of sales from a given day to a cause that supports the local community or economy. Five percent of the 43 stores’ total sales from July 20 will be donated to Working Solutions, a nonprofit microlender committed to helping San Francisco Bay Area entrepreneurs realize their dreams of business ownership. Working Solutions offers both capital and free business consulting to all borrowers. The organization administers the Local Producer grants following Whole Foods Market funding, and remains available as both an additional funding resource and an educational resource for winners.

“We are proud to be partnering with Whole Foods Market on the Local Producer Grant Program for this third year,” said Emily Gasner, Working Solutions CEO. “We’ve helped distribute over $400,000 in grant funds to nearly 80 businesses; these dollars have helped past grant recipients grow their businesses in many ways: from new packaging to organic certification to repairing broken equipment. We are thrilled to complement our own mission of providing affordable small business loans and personalized business consulting with the grants provided through Whole Foods Market and the 5% Day program.

Whole Foods Market has long been committed to supporting local producers. This is the third year for the grant program. In 2007, the company founded the Local Producer Loan Program, which provides short term, low-interest loans for capital expenditures for small food producers. To date, the Local Producer Loan Program has loaned more than $20 million to small businesses nationwide. For more information on Whole Foods Market’s support of local vendors, visit
